not likely to ever happen. Truggy is mostly popular in the US. Its not very popular outside the US. Plus, you can see most of the track have more buggies then truggies racing. I know my tracks truggy class almost died, but with the rc8t, it is picking up a little.

The truggy class is growing like crazy where i race. A normal club race is about 8-10 buggies and about the same if not a couple more truggies.

There will be at some point if the class keeps growing like it is. Will probably be a few more years though.

I've never been interested in Truggy. This is a very good thing, because if I was supporting a buggy and a truggy... I would be found naked and dead of starvation under the drivers stand.

Isn't that the truth? I'm running MT, 4WD Electric Buggy, 1/10th Gas Truck, and will soon be adding 2WD Electric Truck to the mix. I'm actualy entertaining the idea of also running 1/8th buggy or truggy. Insanity knows no bounds.

The wife does understand that at least this hobby is good for the kids, and is less expensive (and better for my health) than pollishing a bar stool with my arse...

Oh, and I must use your quote in my sig for a while. It's priceless!!!

That has to be the best line I've seen in a long time. I laughed until tears flowed and the 'ol lady made me walk away from the 'puter. Very good
